I just hit my own kiriban OTL... >_<;.
Anyway, finished inking one pic. :). Still need to finish the BG on another. >_<;. I hate BGs.
*waits for the barrage of Star Wars related art and journals*
It happened for Pirates of the Caribbean, Frozen, and Harry Potter.. now it'll be Star Wars for sure. XD.
But that's OK. I liked the stuff for those, so I'm waiting for the Star Wars stuff patiently.

ANYWAY.. just had to say it. Cause I'm sure you guys are sick and tired of updates and that alone.
Yep. Still here. I just only check periodically. I know, I'm horrible. I'm much more active on Tumblr, to tell the truth. But I don't count Tumblr as my 'art site'. It's like a supplement to this to me--I post the same stuff there eventually as I do here, and sometimes have doodles, photos, sketches, or stuff I don't feel is polished enough to be posted here.
Not saying I'm quitting, though. I'm not. I'm just saying I forget to check DA. OTL.

Stuff's been not too great with me. Art wise has been great, but not real life. But most of RL has straightened itself out so I won't bore you with that. Just looking forward to Christmas. :D.
And to my Secret Santa from Redditgifts to ship my stuff. >_<;.

Art wise, I've been mostly working on asks and Pipsqueak character requests. I'm done with those for the moment though, so maybe I'll get some time to work on finishing my art? I've been working on that Soul Eater piece for months because I keep getting sidetracked. It looks awesome, though--best coloring I've done, I think. I mostly just need to do the background, if I remember right.
The other three I haven't touched, though. I'm thinking of putting the inks down for the Rin pic I did right now, but I really haven't done anything. And I'm thinking of scrapping the Kyubey one. I think I can do a better pose than that. The problem with that idea is that iron gates always have those points on them, and a person can't stand on something that thin. But I'm going to find a way to make it work. Definitely.
Other than that, I've been playing MapleStory a lot, and just browsing Tumblr and the net in general. Haven't even watched anime much because this season sucks. I tried Tantei Team Jikan Note KZ, Magical Somera-chan, Asterisk Wars, Chivalry of a Failed Knight, and I remember watching episode one of Concrete Revolutio. TTJNKZ(first one) is too short, and takes 4 episodes to do what should happen in one episode. Magical Somera-chan is random CRAP. Seriously. I dropped Asterisk Wars after 2 episodes because it was too similar to Chivalry of a Failed Knight and Sword Art. And Absolute Duo. Chivalry of a Failed Knight is actually OK, but it's not great. And Concrete Revolutio was crap, too.
I know the 'in' anime this season is One-Punch Man, but I don't have any interest in it. Next season looks promising, though, so I only have to endure another few weeks,

I haven't really been reading manga too much, either. Just keep forgetting, I guess. Which is a huge problem, given the fact that they're library books. OTL.

Anyway, that's it for now.

Pipsqueak avatar--Keyan22 by Gellert-Grindelwald
Pipsqueak avatar--Keyan22
For MapleStory forum member Keyan22. The character's name is Keyan though, so I used the character name for the decoration. This decoration is the third option, and the most popular. I'm partial to this one myself, but I didn't think it fit my avatar as well. Anyway, his staff/wand was a pain. It just didn't like me. >_<;. I know he (I'm just assuming here) likes it, which is a good thing. :).

Pipsqueak avatar--Elise by Gellert-Grindelwald
Pipsqueak avatar--Elise
My personal MapleStory forum avatar of my own character, Ilphzyne. I'm also rather proud of this one. The details on the Lotus outfit on a 100x100 chibi made this avatar extremely difficult on me. The horns, hair, and wings look good to me, too. Kind of rare for me to say, really. I'm proud of my avatar. And while I should be using the Pale Student Teacher one I made cause of Kinesis coming out, I don't want to right now because I'd rather have my own art if I can. This is probably the first time I've used my own art since like forever. I haven't been proud enough of anything to do so in a long time.
Anyway, about my character (since I can describe her), she's of the Luminous class, but is a Nova. I don't care too much about technicalities when it comes to RPing, lol. I suppose I could say she was given the extra magic type by the Black Mage?
Anyway, she's the sister of Magnus (I just think the pouty face for girls looks like Magnus's female equivalent face, and that's what the game gave me. I decided on sibling because of that), and also his strategist. But no, in my non existent story she isn't the one behind the barrier breaking or specter stuff. She volunteers to be his strategist precisely BECAUSE his ideas are so bad. She also has a massive crush on Lotus, which is not going to end well for her. >_<;. But anyway, she adopts his uniform for herself because of this (and because it 'looks cool').
And that's all I have right now. Still working on the story.
And as an additional note about her character design, I know Magnus has cyan/brownish horns, wings, and a tail, but the game doesn't have that. And I didn't want her to be a perfect copy--siblings rarely are. I'm just assuming one parent has the wing/tail/horn combo she does. Her eyes are actually supposed to be yellow, but since the game shows them as a kind of orange, I colore them as the game showed. And as for hair color, I originally chose purple with no story in mind for her, and chose purple based on liking it the most for the default Luminous hair. I'm debating on changing it to black to at least have something in common with Magnus besides horn shape/eye shape, but I still like the purple. >_<;.

Pipsqueak avatar--FallingLeaves by Gellert-Grindelwald
Pipsqueak avatar--FallingLeaves
For the MapleStory forum user FallingLeaves.

About a month ago, I was randomly doodling heads of my Maple characters (cause I was seriously bored), and being too lazy to draw detailed faces, I gave them the simplistic eyes and mouths that the pipsqueak characters you see in MapleStory (in particular, Yut and Monster Life) do. This gave me the idea to open up requests to users to make pipsqueak avatars of their characters. And because it was so close to Christmas, I decided to make a few Christmas themed borders/decorations for them. This one is based on the Christmas image of a star.
I'll post about two more today, then save the rest for another day. I'm pretty fond of how this came out, especially the hair. Which was seriously a PAIN. >_<;.
I'm not sure if this is digital painting or a doll. I did make a base for it (heavily basing it off of Maple's existing pipsqueak characters but not directly tracing them. And even then, I think mine are taller), and it is like 2 pixels at a time, but there is some blurring because of the tool I used. Don't know what to call this. >_<;.

**the above is out of date, but I like the picture**

Hi. :). I'm Elise Grimwald (or Elise/Reine Schelmisch/Filia Ryuuza, it depends on the site. It's either Elise or Elise Grimwald on the WHOLE, though). I've been drawing since I was 8 years old, but only started trying to learn using How-to books when I was 15. I still feel that I have a long way to go, however. ^^;. And it's been 10 years since I began drawing seriously. I joined Deviantart on July 4th, 2003 (on my old account), and have loved it here ever since. In addition to drawing, I make wallpapers occasionally. However, I can't post them here. :(.
As for influences on my art.. I don't particularly emulate one artist. I've tried to make a style that's my own. I do, however, really enjoy the works of Ken Akamatsu, Cocoa Fujiwara, Mayumi Azuma, Aoi Mizuki, Studio R.R.O.C. (I loved their Harry Potter doujinshi), Yuna Kagesaki, Arina Tanemura, Yana Toboso, Hiromi, Kara, and Yuzu Mizutani.
In addition to drawing, I also enjoy writing fiction. I'm working on a novel titled "Moonlit Night". It's REALLY slow going for me, though. I also write and draw my own webcomic, which can be seen either on here, or on the website below. I also enjoy video games, particularly RPGs. I also love anime and manga, and am a HUGE fan of the Harry Potter series (as can be seen by my username. XD.).
I'm going to leave some of my old profile info, as well. Thanks for reading this, and I hope that you enjoy my art.

Old profile info that I think is relevant:
Favourite genre of music: Alternative, Rock, Soft Rock, Pop (to an extent), Japanese music such as Vocaloid music
Favourite style of art: Anime, Soft celled CG, painted
Shell of choice: Magic Conch. XD
Favourite cartoon/anime/game character: Gaav, Fate Averruncus, Klaus(Nya), Asuna Kagurazaka, Jeanne, Lemina Ausa, The Warden, Brian Griffin, Yuki Cross (As Cross, not Kuran), Megurine Luka (does she count?), Makoto Sawatari, Neinheart, Fang the Sniper, Grell Sutcliff, Ciel Phantomhive, Alice (Pandora Hearts), Lily Baskerville, Rin Tohsaka, Lisbeth (Sword Art Online), Sinon (Sword Art Online), Kyoko Sakura, Kyubey, Vaughn (Harvest Moon), Pierre (Harvest Moon).

It would be awesome if you did. :). I love seeing MapleStory cosplays. It's really a shame they're so rare. >_<;. Fortunately, you still have quite a bit of time to make it. Fortunately for me, too. ^^;. I only have a few of the things I need for my cosplay. :(.
And that's great to hear. :). I've been going for years too (this will be my 11th year). :). And yes. We do. XD. I would love for the gathering to become a reality. There's only been one other to my knowledge, and that wasn't at ACen. We need to remedy that. XD. I've already made a post about it on Tumblr, and have already gotten one other person that would be interested. Maybe a post on the main MapleStory forum or one of the fansites would work? I'll see what the rules are regarding that on those forums, and post there.
